Elvis Costello

Graeme Thomson, Herald, The, 23 August 2002

YOU DON'T REALLY interview Elvis Costello. It's more a matter of tossing a few loaded questions at him then taking cover as each enquiry explodes upon impact, sending a slew of scattergun observations flying back towards you at a considerable rate of knots. No tangent is too obtuse, no alley too blind, and no 1940's jazz-man too obscure to pass unmentioned.

Total word count of piece: 1799
